A few weeks back I mentioned I would share my super easy recipe for Chilean Summer Salad. Well, with summer almost gone I thought it was high time I share that recipe while the tomatoes are still tender and the onions sweet.
1 LB Tomatoes (I like Heirloom Varieties)
1 Whole Yellow Onion
1 Cu Hot, Boiling Water
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
Salt to Taste
Peel your onion
Slice your onion
Place all of your onion in a bowl and cover with boiling hot water
Cover with a towel and let stand for 10-15 minutes. You are lightly blanching the onion so all of that onion-i-ness tones down, but you maintain the crispness.
Slice your tomatoes and place a large bowl
Drain your onions and rinse with cool water
Add onions to your tomatoes in the bowl
Add the olive oil and salt to taste
Stir well until all ingredients are mixed. Place in the refrigerator until chilled. Serve as a side to tacos, rice and beans or any other deliciousness you can think of!
